Retire in 21 days and hitting the road

Greetings All,
I've been lurking your threads for a couple of months as I prepared to retire from the Army, and I thought I would sign up and say "Hey" since I just bought my first RV ('96 Winne Adventurer). I'm leaving the bricks and sticks and planning to try my hand at full timing right out of the gate...because I'm that "Special" kind of crazy.

I've been wondering if anyone has a good written pre-movement inspection checklist? Yes, the Army has conditioned me that badly

Hope to meet my fellow crazies on down the road.

Gabriel - welcome to the forums. Use the search function to search "checklists". The subject has been discussed ad nauseum.

Plenty of knowledgeable people here. Feel free to ask specific questions.

First off Sir, Thank You for all that you did and/or have done for us here in the states. Congratulations with your imminent retirement. Now get the rig checked out and go have some fun! Be sure to take advantage of the COE Camp Grounds. I do believe you get a rather large discount!
